“This is where I feel good, I wake up in the morning and I feel good, I come to training and I feel happy- there's no reason to change that.

The FIFA U-20 World Cup winner said the manager has had a huge impact on the club based on the training regimen each day and said they were enjoying it and wanted the pace to kept at that same level.

“He's had a big impact on the club, a big impact on me staying, I love the work that we are doing. We are training really hard, we are enjoying the training sessions and we need to keep it going.

"I had to discuss with the national team coach and we spoke about it and he told me that there was no problem at all, the Championship is a very good league and that he was ok with my decision, as long as I’m fit and do what I've always done for the national team," he added.
